Recycling Your Disaster Debris

As one of the largest tree debris recycling centers in the state of Florida, we have worked on large scale clean-ups after major storms. With six recycling centers, we have the scale and capacity to handle huge amounts of green waste. Rather than burn or bury debris, we take that waste and recycle it into usable products like mulch and chips.
